I actually live here in Portland, "the City of Roses," and have all my life...
another thing to consider: visiting the Washington Park Rose Gardens...it's free, with great city views, amazing flowers, and lots of room to roam/picnic/sit and visit/etc...the Oregon Zoo is nearby, as well...and OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) is having an exhibit on "Mummies of the World" currently...other points of interest include Powell's "City of Books" downtown, and the quirky VooDoo Donuts with their strange variety of donuts--also downtown...
just some thoughts to add from a Portland native...
I would meet you but you are way Two young... GBU always
I imagine you would prefer the company of a lady, but if no takers, I would be happy to extend a bit of hospitality. Lunch is on me.
Just message me your contact info privately prior to 10pm the day before you are here. Safe travels...
